Description: A co-ordinated plan is proposed for the identification of toxic emissions from oil sand developments in the AOSERP study area. Interviews with over 40 specialists in various fields relevant to this study developed essentially no confirmed awareness of existing biological stresses due to emissions from existing operations. However, there are appreciable concerns on the part of those interviewed relative to possible long-term biological degradation due to oil sand developments.
